Wisconsin State Journal is latest of 35 newspapers to flip endorsement from Obama in ’08 to Romney for president
In the final hours of the presidential campaign, the largest endorsing newspaper in the swing state of Wisconsin has thrown its support to GOP nominee Mitt Romney.
In an editorial published Sunday, the Wisconsin State Journal said:
This is not an easy endorsement to make.
Obama is the more likeable candidate and inspiring speaker. Obama inherited a mess from his predecessor, Republican President George W. Bush, who was even more disappointing than Obama has been.
Obama got us out of Iraq. He pressured public schools to reform. He gave the final order that got Osama bin Laden.
But this election is about jobs, the slow economy and Washington’s dysfunction. Our leaders can’t even pass a budget, much less stabilize soaring debt that’s burdening our children and grandchildren.
